Thinking in Bets

Author: Annie Duke
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9780735216365
Release Date: 2018-02-06
Genre: Business & Economics

Poker champion turned business consultant Annie Duke teaches you how to get comfortable with uncertainty and make better decisions as a result. In Super Bowl XLIX, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made one of the most controversial calls in football history: With 26 seconds remaining, and trailing by four at the Patriots' one-yard line, he called for a pass instead of a hand off to his star running back. The pass was intercepted and the Seahawks lost. Critics called it the dumbest play in history. But was the call really that bad? Or did Carroll actually make a great move that was ruined by bad luck? Even the best decision doesn't yield the best outcome every time. There's always an element of luck that you can't control, and there is always information that is hidden from view. So the key to long-term success (and avoiding worrying yourself to death) is to think in bets: How sure am I? What are the possible ways things could turn out? What decision has the highest odds of success? Did I land in the unlucky 10% on the strategy that works 90% of the time? Or is my success attributable to dumb luck rather than great decision making? Annie Duke, a former World Series of Poker champion turned business consultant, draws on examples from business, sports, politics, and (of course) poker to share tools anyone can use to embrace uncertainty and make better decisions. For most people, it's difficult to say "I'm not sure" in a world that values and, even, rewards the appearance of certainty. But professional poker players are comfortable with the fact that great decisions don't always lead to great outcomes and bad decisions don't always lead to bad outcomes. By shifting your thinking from a need for certainty to a goal of accurately assessing what you know and what you don't, you'll be less vulnerable to reactive emotions, knee-jerk biases, and destructive habits in your decision making. You'll become more confident, calm, compassionate and successful in the long run.

Poker Plays You Can Use

Author: Doug Hull
ISBN: 1546996702
Release Date: 2017-10-24

This book is very much of the style of the first in the series with the easy to read hand histories played at stakes that us mere mortals actually play at.The book is divided into four sections: Three sections are devoted to hand histories which cover tactics, strategy, and unforced errors. The fourth section comprises the "Missions". These are a series of exercises and study techniques you can use to improve your game.Tactics are very much in the style of my first book, they are plays that can be made in specific situations that happen with reasonable frequency. The strategy section is more general guidance and analysis that is often more theoretical and more lengthy in discussion. Unforced errors are hands where the Villain did something wrong and we were the lucky beneficiary. These chapters show errors to avoid and how to benefit from these gifts when offered.Missions focus on off-table study. The missions are all created so that no computer analysis is required. After years of coaching, I have discovered many readers and students have the most success absorbing and actualizing the materials from this book with the use of physical cards and chips. I have found this to be superior to just using poker software for range analysis and equity calculations.
